Residents will be left stranded when proposed bus timetable changes come into effect, a Dundee councillor has claimed.
A slew of changes have been planned for Xplore Dundee-run services across the city.
However, West End councillor Fraser Macpherson fears people living in his constituency will lose out in the shake-up.
The Liberal Democrat has written to the firm’s managing director Christine McGlasson, pleading for the company to reconsider its proposals.
High on his list of complaints is the fact that one of the changes was tried out two years ago and proved so unpopular it was ditched.
Mr Macpherson said: “I am very concerned by the proposal of service five again going via Glamis Road.
“This has been done before, it didn’t work well, and will mean nothing apart from the nine going west of Glamis Road on Perth Road and nothing at all running west of Tom McDonald Avenue on Perth Road.
“This is a large area of residential housing being affected adversely.”
Mr Macpherson said the number five service five was rerouted via Glamis Road in August 2016, cutting out hundreds of houses in western Perth Road from the route, and he was “staggered” to see the proposal back on the cards.
“This was poorly received by passengers and was changed back to the old route just last October,” he said.
“I am pretty staggered and disappointed that Xplore is thinking of making the same mistake again.
“I am also concerned about possible reductions in service to Technology Park and a proposal to reroute service four away from Minbank Road, leaving the street with a very poor service indeed.”
The changes are currently being reviewed by Dundee City Council and are scheduled to come into effect on October 21.
The transport company said it was aiming to bring “improvements to punctuality and safety”.
Christine McGlasson said: “We are constantly keeping a close eye on our network and monitoring the comments we get from the public via customer services, community forums and local councillors.
“The changes we’re planning for October are intended mainly to simplify some routes and improve reliability.
“Our aim, as always, is to ensure we provide a safe, efficient, value-for-money public transport network for our city.”
